Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The entire 2nd generation Odyssey (1999-2004) is just one giant transmission problem waiting to happen.

problem #1

Aug 282011

Odyssey WAG4X24D V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 183,511 miles


Only after a little over 5,000 miles expired warranty, replacing my transmission in July 2010 the torque went out in the van again. So after a total of 17,000 miles after putting in a rebuilt transmission in July 2010 at appx. $2,200.00 I am looking at another $1,000.00 to rebuild the torque and the guy is not even going to charge me labor. I still owe on this piece of sh*t van. I wouldn't buy another Honda if they were the last brand of cars on the lot. Save your money and time go get a Toyota..had two of them and sorry as hell I got rid of it. The family was growing so needed a van instead of a car..worst mistake of my life.
